Tell GoDaddy To Remove Web Site Advocating Murder of LGBT Kenyans
March 12th, 2010
We reported earlier that GoDaddy is hosting charged domestic terrorist Neil Horsley’s ProjectSEE web site, which is posting identifying information about LGBT Kenyans along with an exhortation to carry out the Levitical call to murder. That web site is also the source for several posters which are appearing in parts of Kenya with photos and other information about LGBT individuals there. Horsley has already been arrested for threatening Elton John in front of his condo in Atlanta.
After the New York office of the Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR) contacted Joe.My.God, who referred them to me for more information, amfAR CEO Kevin Robert Frost faxed the following letter to Bob Parson, CEO and founder of GoDaddy. We encourage you to contact GoDaddy yourself and demand that this web site be taken down.
Meanwhile, the Gay Activists Alliance International (GAAI) has reportedly contacted PayPal about Horsley’s fundraising account through their web site. I’m told but cannot confirm that PayPal has promised to investigate.
Dear Mr. Parsons,
I am writing to make a specific complaint regarding the website www.projectsee.com which is in clear violation of GoDaddy.com terms of service.
In section 5 under the heading “NO UNLAWFUL CONDUCT OR IMPROPER USE,” it states: “Except as set forth below, Go Daddy may also cancel Your use of the Services, after thirty (30) days, if You are using the Services, as determined by Go Daddy in its sole discretion, in association with spam or morally objectionable activities. Morally objectionable activities will include, but not be limited to:
- activities designed to defame, embarrass, harm, abuse, threaten, slander or harass third parties;
- activities prohibited by the laws of the United States and/or foreign territories in which You conduct business;
- activities designed to encourage unlawful behavior by others, such as hate crimes, terrorism and child pornography;
- activities that are tortuous, vulgar, obscene, invasive of the privacy ofa third party, racially, ethnically, or otherwise objectionable;
- activities designed to impersonate the identity of a third party;
- illegal access to other computers or networks (i.e., hacking);
- distribution of Internet viruses or similar destructive activities;
- activities designed to harm or use unethically minors in any way; and
- activities associated with the sale or distribution of prescription medication without a valid prescription.
The website in question clearly shows the names, phone numbers, and emails of individuals whom the authors believe should be targeted in their home country of Kenya.
This very personal attack constitutes a direct threat to the safety and well-being of these individuals and is morally reprehensible. Were the individuals Americans, and targeted in the US, this would constitute a clear violation of US law. It is my sincere hope that Go Daddy will take immediate action to remove this website.
The proprietor of this website is one Neal Horsley. Mr. Horsley was arrested on March 10,2010 in Atlanta, Georgia for making a threat on the life of the entertainer Elton John.
It may sound hyperbolic to state, but people’s lives in Kenya are in immediate danger. Time is of the essence. Go Daddy must act with expedience if this injustice is to be rectified before it is too late. It is my sincere hope you will see fit to act immediately.
